AXLR8 have a proven reliable track record in the BYOD geo-location of staff using smartphones. However, geofencing has always been reserved for our asset tracking modules.
Now our staffing agency clients and others in construction, debt collection, and many other verticals want to be able to stop people checking in for work at remote locations unless they are actually there.
Unfortunately, there has always been a tiny minority of remote workers who check in on time but are actually a mile or more away from the place where they are being paid to provide a service. In a couple of cases, people have checked in for a work day at a retail outlet demonstrating products and it has been proven by the AXLR8 system they were still at home. Reputations take a long time to build in staffing agencies. Those guys wreck an agency’s hard earned reputation and they have nowhere to hide if they attempt to defraud an AXLR8 client using AXLR8 Proof of Location systems.
Please contact us for more details.
Those in staffing will find it useful as there are some pointers about adding the Opt Ins to your staff contracts. It seems reasonable to ask staff to read email in order to see what what work is coming up, confirming/ changing shifts and so on. More is available on our specialist staffing website at http://staffing.axlr8.com.
For example, we will be covering data retention periods and especially applicant data and data about terminated staff (with and without payment history.
AXLR8 are creating special new SAR 30/60/90 Information Request Types. More details are on the way to government users of our FOI systems.
If you have called in on any of our 01344 776500 lines, you may have noticed an intermittent crackle that has worsened over the last few days.
Open Reach are coming in at some point on Saturday aftrenoon 10th March and the 01344 776500 main lines will be down for at least an hour or two as they test and replace.
This problem does not seem to affect outgoing lines (which you should be able to use as well) starting 01344 75354x (e.g. 01344 753540 and 01344 753541 plus several DDL lines.) If we are not answering and it is urgent, please email or use a director’s mobile phone number. Just to confirm, Helpdesk answering times are 9-5 M-F excluding English public holidays. However, for foreign clients and in emergencies, we can be contacted most evenings and weekends and public holidays. I cannot remember a time when this has ever been abused.
The fines associated with General Data Protection Regulations which come in on 25th May 2018 are huge. None of us can afford 4% of turnover. The reputation damage to your business would be much higher.
Just like you, AXLR8 have beeen burning hard earned reserve cash preparing for GDPR on top of our Penetration Testing, Vulnerability Scanning and the resulting remediation action plans.
Many people are claiming to help you with GDPR if you pay them money. If, like of most of our clients, have more sense than money and some basic legal IT understanding, you should visit this ICO link. It is the official UK Information Commissioner’s Office website and the pages of content are authoritative and clearly explained. All you need to know is that you are the “Data Controller” and AXLR8 is your “Data Processor”. Obviously, if you have in house systems as well, you are both DC and DP for those systems.
If you have any queries about the matter, please do not hestitate to call and book a (free) call with one of our consultants. “A stitch in time…..”
